Re: Bullfinch

It is quite dark - I managed to lighten it enough to bring out the eye a bit, although there is nothing to retrieve from the black areas around the eye and on the wings, though I don wonder if there is more information in the original file?

Re: Bullfinch

Yes, I think a wee bit of fill-in to the shadows will almost definitely bring out some detail, especially in the wing feathers and around the eye. Also you could cheat and clone in a bit more catch-light in the eye, using just 1 or 2 pixels would do it nicely.
